Buying carpet – where to start

Buying carpet - where to start

Our Carpet Buying Guide

When buying carpet – there is now an overwhelming amount of differing carpet types available on the market and you’d be forgiven for feeling overwhelmed by the choices that you now have. For every need, there is a carpet type, for every style, there is a colour and it can be hard to know where to start.

Carpets bring a style, practicality and warmth to your home that is not rivalled by any other flooring type and once you’ve found the perfect one for you, it spends years adding lifestyle value.

We want to help make the process as easy and seamless as possible, we are going to offer some tips and tricks for making the process as painless as possible.

Do your research and set a budget

Before you even start to really think about the kind of carpet that you really want, it’s worth taking the time to fully plan out your personal goals and budget. It’s important that you know exactly what kind of carpet that you want and how much you are going to spend. This will allow you to stay focused and to feel less overwhelmed by the options out there.

This information will really help you to streamline the entire process and help you to easily get what you want, for the price that you are able to pay.

Carpet samples

Once you have fully narrowed down the colour and type of carpet that you want, you are more than welcome to take home your sample choices, pop them down in the area of the home that you are looking to carpet because this will allow you to know exactly how it would look and feel.

Choose an underlay

Carpet Underlay is important as it can entirely change how your carpet sits, looks and feels within your home. It is important in most housing types but particularly in older homes, as it can help to ensure the surface is even before the carpet is applied. In addition, it can also help with heat and sound insulation.

As underlay can warp and wear over time, it’s important to replace it each time you need a new carpet. If you are considering laying underfloor heating in your home, underlay will be even more important.
